Burnet Pool FAQ

Here are the answers to a few of the most common questions we've come across, as well as a few swimming pool related tips. If your question is not covered here, or if you would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact Twin Peak Pool Service.


  • How do I prolong the life of my pool equipment.

    The number one thing you can do to prolong the life of your pool equipment is to keep your pool filled to the proper water level so that the pump and plumbing do not run dry. Additionally, it is important to keep the skimmers free of obstructions (like leaves), so emptying the skimmer baskets on a regular basis (especially when the leaves are falling) will help keep water flowing through your systems.

     


  • Do I really need your services for my swimming pool?

    Our services is required to keep your pool safe and clean. Whether or not you need the full range of services Twin Peak Pool Service provides really depends on how much time and effort you are willing to spend on your swimming pool yourself. If your only interest is to be able to jump in at any given time, then you probably want to consider getting the full service package.

     


  • Why do I need a pool heater?

    You don't (unless you have a spa or hot tub). Heaters are not necessary for you to fully enjoy your swimming pool. They do, however, extend your pool-using days considerably, and allow you to continue using your swimming pool later in the season, when the sun isn't always warm enough to do the job.

     


Pool Tips

A few tips to help you enjoy your swimming pool in comfort...and safely:

  • Make sure first aid and life saving equipment, such as a life preserver, is always kept close to the pool.
  • Never leave children unattended in or around the pool.
  • Always make sure that all toys and pool accessories (such as floating mattresses) are taken out of the pool when you are done using it. Toys left behind in the pool may lure a child back to the pool when an adult is not present.
  • Keep an eye on the weather. It is extremely dangerous to be in or around the pool during an electrical storm, so you should head inside if the sky darkens.
  • Consider enrolling in a CPR course. No one wants to think of the worst, but being prepared for it doesn't hurt and may mean life instead of death.
